Do you mean a true Cali Burrito with carne asada, fries/potatoes and sour cream/guac or do you just mean counter gringofied mex places like Chipotle?

I think Burrito Bros in River Market does a true San Diego style burrito (the owners are kinda too friendly, creepy). Burritos to Go on Armour might too. I've seen them around but not into potato based burritos so don't recall exactly who does them.

As far as counter burritos, there are countless places, way more real street Mex than gringo style. Check yelp. Rico's Tacos Lupe on SW Blvd might be the best on the cheap. I think they have a $2 burrito day. The street tacos are fantastic as well. El Camino Real, Ninfas, Tortillaria San Antonio, El Torito II in KCK. Lenexa and Merriam have quite a few good places but do not recall names.

This is a good thread on street counter mex joints in KC...

For a sit down CaliMex restaurant, I like El Patron on SW Blvd. Great fish tacos with avocado. But not counter cheap.
